Movement range display


Hello again! This week I am bringing you the revamped character movement range display:


Movement in green area allows the user to perform an action after the move; moving into red area prevents executing any other actions.

Now, I will be sure whether such way of presenting stuff is readable after I will have the "real" floor and wall images - because only then I will be able to see how they blend in with the colors.

Additionally, I've added few more AI changes to the basic rat grunt enemy - it now has only a single crossbow shot available, and then relies on its melee attack. Also, as it will come in large numbers, it is quite easy to kill - so it has only a single HP.

The best part about being overwhelmed by multiple enemies is of course being able to perform some kind of area of effect attack. Even though I do not have a separate animation prepared for this, the mechanics are all there - so it is possible to cause damage on more than one enemy at a time.

I have now started working on the next major feature, which is the loot system in general. However, due to a holiday break, I am pretty sure that the next big update will come no sooner than in three weeks.

And for the time being enjoy the gifs and be well!
